minnesota congresswoman tea party darling michele bachmann opens up her mouth i either kring or laugh -- cringe or laugh out loud. how can somebody who is so out of touch with mainstream america, somebody who's so ignorant who's so dangerous, be a member of the u.s. house of representatives? many people were hoping that after her disastrous presidential run that ms. bachmann would fade quietly into the background. well i'm sorry to tell you she has no intention of going anywhere. she is running for re-election. this despite the fact she barely held on to her seat in 2010. she actually spent almost $12 million that year. more than any other congressional candidate in the country and she won with just 52% of the vote. tonight we want to introduce you to the brave soul who is we start at american motels with $2,000 in savings. >> times were tight with two young kids. >> we worked hard. >> we were blessed. >> it is time we help the middle class succeed, too. that's why i'm running for congress. >> he's the man who hopes

would think that rick perry and michele bachmann had just learned the u.s. was on the road to armageddon. actually, they were reacting to the decision by the supreme court to uphold president obama's affordable care act probably does signal the end of time. let us be honest. chief justice roberts to the disappointment of many conservatives sided with his liberal peers is actually no lefty. and if mitt romney is elected president and gets several supreme court picks justice roberts, chief justice will preside over the most conservative court in our nation's history. and joining us from new york to discuss the intersection of presidential politics and the supreme court is jeffrey toobin, the author of the "the oath, the obama white house and the supreme court." jeffrey toobin, so glad to have you inside "the war room." >> great to talk to you governor. >> jennifer: you and your great books on the series of the court. will you go down in history as the documenter of all of the good gossip behind the pillars
